Wireless Surveillance Camera

MicroPower Technologies (San Diego, CA) has announced the Helios ™ IR Camera. With the addition of an energy-efficient IR illuminator, the Helios day/night device captures and transmits IR-illuminated video data wirelessly up to ½ mile. Powered by solar energy and an internal, long-life lithium battery, the Helios IR Camera yields continuous operation for up to five days on a single charge. The wireless technology does not require cabling for power or data transmission. The system is designed with a smaller footprint — reducing the solar panel size to 1.2 ft2.
